You Never Forget Your First One

At left, my first review on amazon.com. What a nice surprise that was! Made my day -- thank you Maxine.

According to marketing experts, I am supposed to solicit as many of these reviews as I can. This helps with exposure. It doesn't really help my sense of integrity though. I feel funny doing that. (But not funny enough to stop me from coming at it in a roundabout way like through this blog. I know, I know, I'm not fooling anyone.)

Yesterday I spent about $175 on flyers for the book. Today I will begin distributing them with a cold call to a bookstore in Ventura. Guess I'll be showering this morning!
